9 Months Old
Someone recently turned 9 months old.
Sweet Potato has officially been out longer than she was in! Everyday she is more confident in her ever widening range of skills.
- Feeding herself
- Squishing foods in her hands-- making mealtime extra special
- Pulling herself up
- Walking or crawling around the house
- Emptying trash cans
- Reading books (with us and by herself)
- Saying "mmamma" "gluck, gluck" "bubba"
In other news, we have (knock on wood) found a solution to the constipation issue. Miralax initially got the system going and we've now cut back to about 1/2 teaspoon every three days. BIG improvement from 2 teaspoons everyday! Yogurt, however, was the trick. All I can guess is that her intestines needed the flora found in yogurt. Whatever the case, we're thrilled to have a normal pooping baby!
